Bituach Leumi lawyers declared a labor dispute and said they would begin implementing sanctions Sunday, refusing to appear in Labor Court hearings, Israel Radio reported. The dispute was declared in coordination with the Histadrut because the Finance Ministry and Bituach Leumi canceled the transfer of payment for trial preparation.

Bituach Leumi management expressed surprise at the sanctions because it claimed the changes were agreed upon, saying that they would speed up negotiations with the attorneys this week in order to reach a settlement.
